Approach to Practical Pediatrics loved to read as an undergraduate and postgraduate student in pediatrics. This book reflects a simplified approach to clinical cases in pediatrics. New chapters packed with information and practical tips have been added on Anthropometry, Health Indicators, High-risk Newborns, and Leukemia. Detailed and updated information have been added about asthma devices in chapter on Instruments while vaccine controversies and newer vaccines have been discussed in chapter on Immunization. This book also covers new ground about differential diagnosis of hepatosplenomegaly, management of thalassemia and simplified approach to paraplegia. Chapter on Protein Energy Malnutrition (PEM) includes recent IAP/WHO guidelines on management of severely malnourished child while chapter on Cardiovascular System includes simplified approach for diagnosis of congenital heart diseases (CHD), recent guidelines on management of CHD and rheumatic heart disease in children. This book helps readers to achieve my goal of learning maximum without wasting time in searching answers from different sources.
